ARCHITECTURAL SIGNIFICANCE (Describe important architectural features and 
evaluate in terms of other buildings within the community.) 

One of the most important buildings in town because of its being a near replica of 
the Sylvanus Lazell mansion(torn down in 1970)and because its exterior features are 
so well-preserved. Facade frieze and twin chimneys are original. Scrolled braces 
support brick end-walls. Landscaping restrained to accentuate the lines and 
features of the architecture. Fanlight and sidelights at front entrance. 



HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE (Explain the role owners played in local or state 

history and how the bui^cUjig relates to the development of the community.) 

Ethel Chandler 'called this v "^he. pride's house," she being the seventh of eight 
brides to come £hife»;.-i£t co'uTcKas well be called the house of enlightenment, for* 
with one'possible T^cdp^on at the turn of this century, it has been owned and 
inhabited by thf intellectual leaders of the community. The builder, Gen. Sylvanus 
Lazell , is renowned fbr'Tiis pioneering of the Boston-New Bedford Turnpike in 1804. 
His son-i n-1 awV.' Bartholomew Brown , a Hiaw^er of considerable culture, < is dis- 
tinguished for having served' as president of the Handel and Haydn Society. The 
Cross and Trow families made names and fortunes in carriage-making. Judg e Ezekiel 
Whitman , a native long absent in Portland, Maine, spent a productive retirement 
from the bench in writing and publishing a still-useful family history and other- 
wise stimulating the intellectual life of the town. Robert 0. Harris, also a 
judge, spent his career-building years in the house and eventually was appointed 
U.S. District Attorney for Massachusetts (1921). (He built and from 1387 lived in 
the once-gracious "Bannerman Estate.") Dr. Charles Field practiced in the small 
house at 26 Bedford St., which Robert 0. Harris and his father had "moved up-hill 
from the village" for their law office. Of him little is known, except that he 
made unpreservationly changes in the main house. Ethel Chandler made herself 
a legend in her own time by carving a career in the library profession after being 
widowed with a small child in the 1920's. She was a leader and past president of 
the Massachusetts Library Association, the pioneer of school library service in 
East Bridgewater, and a fine public library administator. Mrs. Chandler a 



legend: for her ability to get exactly what she wanted with the most genteel 

a leader in historic preservation: she has kept the. treasure intact!

ARCHITECTURAL SIGNIFICANCE (Describe important architectural features and 
evaluate in terms of other buildings within the community.) 

One of the best-preserved examples of Mansard style extant in the town. 
Complements the larger Georgian home next to it (MHC, 18 Bedford St,) and calls to 
memory the Mansard-style mansion which stood on the other side until ca, 1970. 




HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE (Explain the role owners played in local or state 

history and how the building relates to the development of the community.) 

The original owner and location are unknown. This building became part of 
the estate of the Hon. Robert Orr Harris (MHC survey form, 18 Bedford) between 
1879 and 1887, when Harris and his father had it moved to this site between their 
two homes to use as their law office. (Robert 0. Harris in 1837 built and moved to 
the soon-to-be-demolished mansion at 43 Bedford St., later known as the Bannerman 
Estate.) Both Harrises were judges and both served as members of Congress. 



St. 



The 1 ittle house was 
Dr. Charles Field. 



used as a medical office by the next owner of 13 Bedford 
Behind the office were areenhouses which had been 



built by Judge Ezekiel Whitman during his retirement at 18 Bedford St, in the mid- 
1300's and enlarged by Dr. Field between 1837 and ca. 1904. Dr. Field sold the 
offic-eand greenhouses apart from the house in the early 1900's to the Appledorn 
brothers, Tony and , who lived in the house and kept a florist 

business on the site until about 1936. 




During the declining years of Tony Appledorn, the oronerty fell into 
disrepair until it was retrieved at auction by Miss Josephine Callahan 1n'l947 and 
later restored by her sister and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Norman Nielsen,

HlGHLIGHTS(Oetails on appended sheets.) 



Commerce. On the lot to the north on the New Bedford Turnpike (1804-06, now 
Route 18), the "Bank House" stands next to the "Old Brick Store" (see MHC 
survey form for 49 Bedford St.) Both are among the earliest of commercial 
buildings surviving in the center of East Bridgewater. Reflecting the 
original dual use, the name "Bank House" appears in all deeds since 1836. 
The East Bridgewater Bank was one of many such local banks which sprang up 
prior to the National Bank Act and were doomed for lack of regulation to 
short lives. (See appended description from Hurd's History of Plymouth County .) 

Ar chl t ec tur e . The house was carefully designed in the Greek Revival style by 
an unknown architect. Pediment, entablature, front door frame, simple columns, 
and six-over-six fenestration are all intact. Facade is 30 degrees off square 
to hug the street; back is on square. The original floor plan, interior 
woodwork, and four of the six original fireplaces are all intact. (See 
appended architectural details.) 

Other themes . A veritable parade of notables has owned and/or lived in the 
house, including the following: 

1836-1842: NAHOM MITCHELL was President of the bank. His career, the high point 

of which was a term as U.S. Congressman (1803-1805), Is outlined In the appended 

obituary from the Proceedings of the Massachusetts Historical Society. ,

9. Historical Highlights (cont.) 



1842-1845: WILLIAMS LATHAM of Bridgewater, author of Epitaphs in Old Bridge- 
water and contributor to local quality of life in many nays, probably leased 
the house back to the ailing bank* (See his biography in Kurd's History of 
Plymouth County. p. 41.) 

1845-1847: CHARLES MITCHELL, yeoman, brother of Judge Nahum Mitchell, had 
interests in several enterprises, including a successful mill in Joppa (with 
Samuel Keen), the store in Joppa (see MHC survey for 734 Bedford St.), and the 
East Bridge-water Bank. 

1847-1852: FRANCIS DAVIS MILLET, painter, author, war correspondent, and 
illustrator, spent his early childhood (ages one to six) here. (See his 
biography from the Dictionary of American Biography; also the Millet Chronology.) 

1873-1881: KIMBALL E. SHELDON was a partner in the Rogers and Sheldon Mill in 
East Bridgewater which has recently been partially restored with matching funds. 



1881- , T1IC WHITMARSH FAMILY: -Egara S. Whitmarsh. Esq .. who according to a 
Nantucket relative, "done a side business in fine farm and wagon horse trading 
from the Brockton area to the Islands here," bought the house to accommodate 
both family and law practice. He moved among many responsible elective town 
posts, notably Assessor, where he is said to have "inaugurated the system 
of collecting each year's tax in the year it was assessed."

Ezra Scott Whitmarsh. Jr. ("Scot"), who died in 1945 at age 86, was hailed as 
"the dean of public officers in the county, ** He was widely respected for his 
expertise in municipal financing, and he established a record with his forty 
years on the board of public welfare. (See appended obituary and a biographical 
sketch from Representative Men, . . of Southeastern Massachusetts .) 

Richard Whitmarsh, Jr. , with his South Shore Concert Band, continues the parade 
of colorful "Bank House" owners right into the present. A researcher and 
reviver of authentic American circus music," "he both lives and works in the 
"Bank House."

Architectural Details of the "Bank House" 



The "Eank Mouse',' built by I836, was carefully designed in the Greek 
Revival style by an unknown architect. Pediment, entablature, front 
door frame, simple columns, and six-over-six fenestration are all intact. 
Facade is 30 degrees off square to hug the street; back is on square. 
The original floor plan, interior woodwork, and four of the six original 
fireplaces are all intact. 



Exterior 

Front door frame with key design is original; modern door inserted, but 
original door is in storage. 

Side door and frame completely modernized in 1960*s; transom undisturbed, 
but shuttered over. 

SiX 

Of the/simple, round columns with top molding and square pedestals, two 
are solid wood originals. The four columns destroyed in the 1938

fllSTORMIt VIEW OF EAST SHlDGEWflTEH- 



Come, come, my friends and lend an ear, 
And listen to my song, 
I'll tell you facts which have occurred, 
As thus we pass along. 

There was a Bank got up in town, 
The people's admiration ; 
But soon they found it was to aid 
In Eastern speculation. 

The President, we all do know ; 
He took his post so grand, 
And lent the money to his sons. 
To pay for Eastern land. 

This President, when once a Judge, 
The people he did ride ; 
And from the path of honesty, 
HL feet have turned aside. 

Old Halifax stcpt up so bold, 
"We've money for to let," 
But not one cent of all the funds 
Have ever they got yet. 

The Cashier next must have a touch, 
He lost his calculation, 
And left the Bank all in a lurch, 
With thousands defalcation 

A rolling mill and factory, 

Were built upon this plan ; 

They sold their stock to pay their debts, 

And cheated every man. 

They sold their right to water, too, 
A grist mill for to run ; 
Two men agreed to build the same, 
Completely it was done. 

Methinks they were to hold the mill, 
Until they got their pay ; 
But our king David, he stept in, 
And stole the mill away. 

He's held the mill some years at least, 
By an unjust possession ; 
A curse has rested on the same, 
Which speaks the foul digression. 

David of old, I think, would mourn, 
At such prodigous awe ; 
Hut young king David says he'll take 
All he can get by law. 

The rail road next must have its due, 
The glory of our nation ; 

The cars they run straight through Toad Hill, 
And nobly fill their station. 

The iron horse upon the rails. 
Does slide along so gaily, 
With water hot upon the spot, 
The mail to carry daily. 

This glorious subject we must leave. 
Thongh one of power and skill ; 
To notice the machinery, 
That's running near To'ad Hill. 



There's little Jimmy on the lead, 
And others on the team, 
Protest against all water power, 
And choose to run by steam. 

A splendid saw mill they have built- 
We wish to pick no flaw, 
But 6aw an error in the sweep 
That does propel the saw. 

There stands the spacious hotel, 
A very handsome seat ; 
A home for weary travelers, 
A house that's always neat. 

Likewise there is the landlord 
Who gives with liberal hand, 
And kindness from his lady. 
To all about the stand. 

Here peace and plenty dwelt within. 
And Temperance likewise ; 
For this old captain of the ship 
Will not sail in disguise. 

His Yankee colors he will set, 
Without regard to nation ; 
And call his men upon the deck. 
And there defend his station. 



And as I then was walking on, 
I came to solemn ground ; 
Where all our friends together 
In silence most profound. 



deep. 



Xear to this spot, a building stands. 
An honor to the town ; 
And there a sacred edifice, 
A structure of renown. 

Again there is the doctor's seat. 
We cannot pass him by. 
For when we're sick we send for him, 
Fearing less we should die. 

He's very good for broken legs, 
He mends them up so strong. 
So fare you well, my good old friend, 
For I must pass along. 

Again I thought that I would stop 
And take another view, 
And near the church upon the green. 
Discovered something new. 

I stood and gazed, and was amazed. 
As thns I looked upon 
Some small stone post a standing there, 
I thought of poor short John. 

And now we'll stop at cousin Joe's. 
And have a little fun ; 
For one would think that he failed 
Before his fence was done. 

So down the hill away I went. 
According to the scheme, 
And called to view those cotton gins, 
A verv nice machine. 



[The above wai composed by Herman Wasliburu about 1848. Reprinted, 1898.} 



There uncle 'Leazcr stands, as firm 
As Rocky Hills or Ocean, 
With cash enough to pay his men, 
Which keeps the ball in motion, 

His works, they are a flowing source 
Of treasure to the East; 
To farmer and machanics too, 
The merchant and the priest. 

We pray for good Eleizer still. 
For a long life and health, 
We wish all the company 
A competence of wealth. 

Success unto their agent, 
Who rules with gentle hand, 
Success to all the workmen, 
Who work about the stand. 

But stop, there's uncle Bina, 
We will call at his door ; 
O ! what a pile of tacks and nails 
He always has in store. 

We wafted down this noble stream, 
Where alewives once did stray ; 
To see friend Josey's little mill ; 
Alas! 'twas torn away. 

Our journey now we will pursue. 
Being done with cotton gins, 
And call up to that little shop, 
Where once they did make pins, 

The sheriff here did take a part 
And made a great display, 
But soon he found the pins they made, 
The cost would never pay. 

So then a plan he did devise, 
His counsel it was deep, 
He caught Abisha in the trap 
When he was fast asleep. 

And soon my friend I must conclude 
I've told you all the news 
Unless we stop at Bryant's shop 
And see them get up shoes. 

The ladies here have full employ 
For vamps they have an itching, 
For cord or bind they are not behind, 
And very good for stitching. 

Here stands the agent's mansion house, 
A lofty situation. 
Romantic to the traveler, 
Is such an elevation. 

To personate this agent, 
It may be thought offensive, 
Because the handle of his face 
Is crooked and extensive. 

Now he possesses cash enough, 
To own a house that's gay. 
But to his workmen of old time 
Some cash he ought to pay. 

And now we've told you of some facts, 
As we have come along, 
We hope there has been no offence. 
Therefore we'll end the song. 

HALIFAX

REFLECTIONS ON HON. NAHIM MITCHELL 

lion. Nahum Mitchell was an Innovator and a Titan in all he did* Aside 
from his state, regional, and national distinctions, he is named as 
"the first" or President" of more forward-looking organizations and 
enterprises by far than are any of his contemporaries* In 1799 he was 
the first postmaster of the "Bridgewater Post Office'; one of the first 
four in the nation* Among other offices, he was the first town 
moderator, a founder of the Young Ladles School (1818), president of 
the first of several Temperance Societies in the town, President of 
the Boston and New Bedford Turnpike Authority, and drafter of the 
constitution for the East Bridgewater Lyceum (1829)* 

It is not surprising, then, that Judge Mitchell, near the end of his 
career, was chosen President of the first bank in East Bridgewater and 
that he saw to it that the bank and its cashier's family were accomodated 
in a building of architectural distinction* 

What is surprising is the end to which the East Bridgewater Bank came 
under so qualified a head* William Allen put it most kindly in Kurd's 
History of rivmouth County ; "• • • allurements" of Eastern land specu- 
lation "seemed to blind the eyes • • ." Herman' Washburn's derision 
notwithstanding, this feet of clay incident n*y perhaps serve only to 
help posterity appreciate the great humaness of Hon. Nahum Mitchell in 
all the facets of the town's history which his life touched.

FRANCIS DAVIS MILLET: 
His Early Life in East Bridgewater 

In her research paper on "The Career of Francis Davis. Millet , " 
H. Barbara Weinberg says 

The current burgeoning of interest in nineteenth-century American 
art suggests that the day may yet arrive when certain challenges 
still available to scholars in this field will be foreclosed. 
These challenges involve reconstructing the careers of artists who 
enjoyed prominence in their own time, but who suffer from almost 
total obscurity in ours. Francis Davis Millet (18^+6-1912. . .) 
is such an artist. . • 

. . .However, as Millet's easel and mural paintings embody 
certain late nineteenth-century American esthetic preferences 
that have as yet received little attention, they merit emphasis 
in this study. . . 

Weinberg continues with a full exploration, from a perspective of 
sixty-five years, of Millet's art and his life as an artist. Her 
paper includes Millet's East Bridgewater roots. 



t, besides sheer chronology, gives historic meaning to the childhood 
home or to the T I ynu _ ,_ hand-built studio of a world-renowned artist? 
The reconstructed colonial kitchen 'of the .flftrVt studio, built in 1875 
by Frank Millet and his father, is much a part of the story Weinberg 
weaves of the early years of Millet's career. However, apparently we 
need not look behind the wallpaper in the "Bank House" for Frank Millet's 
childish scrawls. Says Weinberg, 

While no boyhood artistic inclinations are recorded for Frank 
Millet, one source notes an artistic bent on the part of his 
mother iHuldah (Byram) Millet] , including a talent for designing 



"Exquisite water colors of native flower; 



which may have 



conditioned her son's later interests. (The source cited is 

a typescript paper on Millet by two of his children, which is in the 

Archives of American Art.) 



As Elihu Root remarked in addressing the Francis Davis Millet Memorial 
Meeting of the American Federation of Arts in 1912, "... Yet from 
somewhere among his forbears in old New England there came into his 
make-up a firmness of fiber which made him modest, sensitive, beauty- 
loving as he was, a man of strength and force, decision of character, 
and executive capacity." 

Scrawls or no, these qualities were formed in the "Bank House," and if, 
even now, the sun-flooded or firelit image of Huldah Millet with the 
pre-school Francis Davis Millet does not linger in the old wood-paneled 
kitchen of that house, then history itself is meaningless !

Meeting - The American Federation of Arts (Washington, D.C. , 1912).

MARY W. HARRIS 



In his chapter on "Courts and the Bar" in Hurd's History of Plymouth 
County , William T. Davis includes with the biography of Benjamin Winslow 
Harris a rare note on the lawyer's mother: 



Mary, the mother, was a direct descendant of Kenelm Winslow, 
brother of Governor Winslow of the Plymouth Colony. She was a 
woman who typified in her character the virtues of the Pilgrims, 
with something of their austerity. She was of commanding person, 
dignified, and deeply religious. She possessed a natural gift of 
language, and a manner which made her society always attractive. 
She was very humorous and original in her sayings and descriptions 
of odd characters, and had a keen knowledge of human nature. She 
was blessed with good health and consequent longevity. She lived 
to see her son attain not only high professional, but political 
honors. She was hale and hearty when he was first elected to 
Congress {1872} and spent her eightieth birthday with him in 
..ashington. She died in East Bridgewater on June 20, 1882, 
aged eighty-five years.

EZRA SCOTT WHITMARSH, a citizen of 
•East Bridgewater. who has been associated 
with the life of that town as business mair 
and public official almost from the time he 
attained his majority, was born there May 2!>, 
1858. 

The record of the Whitmarsh family goes 
back to Colonial days, the first of this line of 
whom we have record being John Whitmarsh, 
of Weymouth, Mass., who by his wife Sarah 
had children as follows: 'Increase, born in 
1655; Ebenezer, May- 14, 1658; Simon, May 
11, 1661 ; a child, whose name, is lost on the 
record, Aug. 14, 1663; Zachariah, Sept. 1, 
1667; Judith, Sept. 2, 1669; Ezra, Oct. 13, 
1670; Jane, Sept. 8, 1675. The father's will 
of 1695 does not name* increase, nor Simon, 
nor Jane, but to the other children adds John, 
Sarah, Deborah and Ruth, and grandson 
Richard. 

Of these, Ebenezer Whitmarsh, born May 
14, 1658, married Christian, and their son 
Ebenezer, born March 10, 1688, settled in 
Abington, Mass. He married Elizabeth Dyer, 
and their children of Abington record were: 
Ruth, born June 23, 1718; Marv, May 17, 
1721; William, Sept. 22, 1723; and Matthias, 
Sept. 9, 1726. He married (second) April 
3, 1733, Mehetabel Faxon, barn in Braintree 
June 14, 1698, daughter of Josiah Faxon, 
granddaughter of Richard Faxon and great- 
granddaughter of Thomas Faxon, a native of 
England, who came to New England prior to 
1647, the vear in which a record is found of 
him in Dedham. 

From the Weymouth Whitmarsh family 
sprang the Abinjrton-East Bridgewater family 
of the name, Jacob Whitmarsh, of Abington, 
marrying in 1751 Hannah, probably daughter 
of Benjamin Shaw, and settling in East 
Bridgewater ; and Lot Whitmarsh, son of 
Ebenezer and nephew of Jacob, also settling 
in East Bridgewater, Lot being the ancestor

9. Historical significance (include explanation of themes checked above) 

"General Sylvanus Lazell, who was born in East Bridgewater in 1752, and who died there 
in 1827 j was one to whose enterprise the town was greatly indebted. He began 1 life 
in humble circumstances, but readily surrmounted difficulties. From a common farm 
laborer, be became a cobbler, His ambition was to be a successful trader. He 
began by keeping a few articles of merchandise in his shop window. Constantly adding 
to his means he, after a few years, had a store on what was subsequently the 
turnpike (now Bedford Street), and on the north side of the crossing of Union 
and Bedford Streets, ^Jhe Brick Store came later.] 

General Lazell enticed a number of the towtis early artisans, including Samuel 
Rogers, to settle here, often setting them up in bu3in«ss in the bargain. "It 
was chiefly through Gen. Lazell ! s influence that the turnpike was chartered in 
I80I4." 

"In 1798 he erected in East Bridgewater village the house now owned and occupied 
by Henry Hobart [demolished l°6°:see MHO file for 66 Central StJ. The grounds 
were laid out by himself in a tasteful manner., and were much admired by the 
passing traveler." 

From Hurd's History of Plymouth County , p 882 

From a "Paper Mr. B. W. Keith wrote and read at one of the Socials," we learn 
that the bricks used in the "Brick Store" came from Leonard Hill's brick kiln 
on Bedford Street. Mr. Keith, who died in 1901, also wrote that "The credit 
system was then in vogue and a storekeeper would sell his goods and charge 
them and settle once a year. He frequently book a note for his dues and if any

man owed him and would not pay him he had power by law to carry him to jail 
and I remember to have seen men carried to jail for debt. . • 

"At this time* grocery stores kept for sale ardent spirits which was sold at 
3£ a glass and I have seen in the Brick Store pipes of rum, gin, brandy arid 
wine and a bar at which anyone who wished could have any one of them by 
paying the price, and there were very few men who would not at some time buy 
a drink. [Can you hear the Tsk, tsk, tsk I" of Mr. Keith ! s audience?] 

"Gen. Sylvanus Lazell at one time owned the turnpike Uoute 18] nearly all of 
it from Middleboro to Weymouth and there were two toll gates in this town where 
foot people had to pay one cent and a single horse team 6J# when they passed 
through them. 

"Hon. Nahum Mitchell [whose law office was in the Brick Store in the early 
decades of the lBOO'U was also a man of influence and notoriety. He was a 
judge and also State Treasurer for a number of years. He was also a great 
musician. He published "The Bridgewater Collection of Church Music" and was 
considered as one who understood the rulles of music and harmony better than 
any man in the country. He wrote of composed a great many pieces of music. 
One was called "The Lord's Day" which was considered an excellent piece of 
music." [Mitchell was Lazell's son-in-law^ 

Seth Bryant and Cushing Mitchell, who owned the Brick Store in the I820»s and 
30 f s, were prominent shoe manufacturers. They had started out in Blmwood (Joppa 
Village) in 1821;, soon moving to the Brick Store and in 1829 expanding it by 
building the baGk ell, called "the counting room." This may have served as 
their office, since it had its own entrance on Central Street. 

In the "Historic Address Given by Hon. Robert 0. Harris 11 at the East Bridgewater 
Centennial in 1923 (Mary Keith Scrapbook) is outlined the lineage of storekeep ers 
of the Brick Store. "Mr. Hector Orr kept what we now call Hunting's store. 
Mr. B. Watson Keith was postmaster and his post-office occupied a corner of the 
store. • • after Mr. Orr in the store came Mr. Nutter." Amos Hunting owned the 
store after Nutter and until 1906. It was sometime in this period that the roof 
was changed from the hipped style (see 1881* photgraphs, Mary Keith Scrapbook, 
vol. 1, pp. Wi-US>) to the ridge roof and the third-floor dormer windows added. 
The last storekeeper was George Root, who was there from 1906 to 19^5 • (See 
picture of the interior of the store with employee Simon Sheehan (East Bridge- 
water Public Library). 

From 19li£ to the 1970 »s the Brick Store was the appliance store, first of 
Arnold Swanson and Eric Wallin, then of Swanson and Robert Flood. During this 
period the original front windows were remodeled as show windows, later 
restored by Mr. Steven Mattaliano of M. Clifton Edson Insurance. Edson's was 
followed by an owner who stripped the interior of the store and bricked or 
cemented in the gracefully arched entrance to the "counting house" and the arched 
cellar loading entrance: Mr. Paul Morris. 

The Old Brick Store has the distinction of being the oldest building in the town 
to be used continuously as a commercial site. It is remarkable that so much 
business could have been done, involving so many customers and so many tradesmen 
over a period of over 175 years, and that simple Federal exterior still making 
its stately, quiet claim as the focal point of the East Bridgewater streetscapel

^'r. Keith's paper is undated, but we know that he lived 1813-1901. He spoke 
with authority on the Brick Store, since he spent a good part of his life in 
charge of the Post Office, which was housed there.

BUILDING FORM 



ARCHITECTURAL DESCRIPTION □ see continuation sheet 

Describe architectural features. Evaluate the characteristics of this building in terms of other buildings within the community. 
This house, a Colonial Revival, was a departure from the Federal, 

Greek Revival and the side-hall cottage types on the street. It had 

an ornamented small entrance porch and paired tall windows. The house 

at 33 West Street is similar but has a different roof treatment. 



HISTORICAL NARRATIVE □ see continuation sheet 

Discuss the history of the building. Explain its associations with local (or state) history. Include uses of the building, and the role(s) 

the owners/occupants played within the community. 

When Issac Newton Keith (1333-1 91 B) was a small boy he came from 
Bridgewater with his parents, Isaac Newton Keith and Mary Leonard, 
to live in a house on this sight. This house was moved to West 
Street in 1B80. The present house here was built by Isaac and his 
wife, Frances Torrey, in 1831. Both the son and his father were 
shoe manufacturers. Isaac, the son, carried on a business in a factory 
on the southwestern corner of Bedford 5treet - now Joppa Green. Kis 
son, Frank, later lived in the home. In 1925, his daughter, Mary 
Leonard Keith, retired as supervisor of nurses at the hospital in 
Rochester ,N.Y. She had the barn made into a home. She was fondly 
known by all as "Aunt Mary." 

BIBLIOGRAPHY and/or REFERENCES □ see continuation sheet 

Dates and information on the house and the earlier one were given 

by Patricia Buckingham Schneider, a great-grand daughter of the. builder. 
It was a delightful surprise to become acquainted with her at an 
historical gathering and ask, "When was your grandfather's house 
built?" and to find that it was one generation older than her grandfather, 
Still to be found is the house moved to West Street. 

D Recommended for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. If checked, you must attach a completed National 
Register Criteria Statement- form.
